Crazy Engineering


NASA’s JPL has a video showing real quick how they plan on making a satellite to block out the sun.

It’s not exactly a Mr. Burns type situation, yet, instead the idea is to block the light of the sun (or suns) to better find exo-planets orbiting other stars.The design is interesting, but the implications for nefarious use are too much to handle.  Fortunately, all great inventions are dangerous in the wrong hands, and blocking out the sun would indeed cost Mr. Burns levels of money.
